History

A competent partner for more than 85 years now

In 1928, as an innovative contractor, Oskar Woertz had the idea of simplifying the electrotechnical components according to the wishes of Swiss installers. Planers and craftsmen had their work facilitated. Investors and constructors could carry out their projects with the novel components quicker and with a higher quality. Briefly: thanks to innovative solutions Oskar Woertz made it possible to acquire maximal efficiency with minimal effort. It’s therefore not surprising that it gave birth to a prosperous company which is still family-owned.

Woertz has about 230 employees active on two locations in Switzerland namely Muttenz and Hölstein. Carole Woertz is in charge of the management of this third generation family driven enterprise, one of the last companies in that industry to be family owned in Switzerland.
